I love this song, haha its so spiteful its great. But I was reading the annotated lyrics site and read a blurb about how Barlow wrote this lyric but Bobby never sang it:

"And while you were saying your mantra
I was humping your very best friend
And comparing myself to Sinatra
'Cause I did it my way in her end"

LOL! That is hillarious! I agree 100% with your sentiments on the song. I love the spiteful nature too. Just a great F'n song. Never could understand how someone could not like it ( paging Mr. Wolf ).

btw - a friend of mine says he heard it was inspired by Joan Baez ( who Mickey dated for awhile ). Anyone know if there's any truth to that?

Wow. The ladies that hated Let It Grow and Mexicali for being mysoginistic would have loved that line.

well, perhaps those same women never understood the origins of the tune they thought was extolling their intelligence, or why delilah was a no good bitch
